2008 Retail Excellence Awards
This year’s Retail Excellence Award winners represent the industry’s best of breed. They were chosen by our readers and editors based on several criteria. They have worked hard to present the products they sell in the best light, from training a qualified sales force that helps customers choose the right solutions at the right price to professional installation and service teams that ensure optimum product performance and presentation. The better those teams, the higher the customer satisfaction, which leads to less returns and stronger brand confidence.
This year’s winners are also cornerstones of their communities. They serve as longstanding, trusted brands that contribute to charities, host special events that are as much about fun and education as they are about sales number, sponsor green initiatives, and offer relaxing environments where consumers can plan their next lifestyle enhancement. Most important, though, each retailer offers lessons others can use to improve their businesses.
